Living the diplomat’s life in early 20th-century Russia was an elegant endeavor. This is evidenced by a new exhibit coming to the gorgeous Hillwood Estate, Museum and Gardens. Henry Middleton journeyed to Russia in the 1820s as part of a government posting. His family’s time there is commemorated by an album consisting of 45 portraits, acquired by Hillwood in 2004. The art does a wonderful job of portraying daily life in Russia for the Middletons, as do the exhibit’s other objects, images and publications.
